Sharlto Copley In Elysium – First Official Image

In publishing this picture of Sharlto Copley in Neill Blomkamp‘s Elysium, Empire refer to the character, Kruger, as the film’s villain. Well, that’s maybe a little too black and white, judging from the footage I saw at Comic-Con. I would like to think Blomkamp’s story – about class, healthcare, privilege, a life of labour and so on – would manage some sophistication and shade.

Still, “villain” or not, here’s Kruger.

Seems to be wearing the same kind of exo-skeletal device that Matt Damon had in the first¬†and second images from the film. That alone should tell you something…
